Brightening Christmas for low-income families for over 30 years
The Program supplies a decorated Hamper (box) filled with all the ingredients to prepare a delicious healthy Christmas turkey dinner. The children in the families are not forgotten; in addition to the Hamper, each family is given toys to put under the tree. Our valuable Christmas Hamper Program continues to grow, helping financially vulnerable families and individuals in the Halifax Regional Municipality.
Parker Street is grateful for our donors, volunteers and partners that will be bringing joy to families this year at Christmas. The Turkey Club provides turkeys, radio station Q104 along with the Halifax Professional Firefighters Association operate the toy drive, the Halifax Forum donates the building space and the Bedford Institute of Oceanography’s employees volunteer their time to assemble the food Hampers.
This year we are taking additional steps to keep people healthy during the holidays. We will be taking all the necessary precautions to keep our volunteers safe with COVID-19 protocols as they assemble the Hampers. In addition, to keep families healthy, we will be delivering the Christmas Hampers to their doors.
If you wish to receive a Christmas Hamper, you must register in person at our location, 2415 Maynard St., prior to December 4th, 2020. Please bring your photo ID and proof of address with you.
